Text to Speech should be offered in Spanish

Finding out that there is text-to-speech for English and not Spanish was very disappointing, as that means that, unless we have the manpower to administer the test through a Spanish-speaking human reader to all of those students, we are giving our Spanish-speaking students a language test more so than a content area test; thus, the results don’t paint an accurate picture of what the students actually know. How soon can NWEA offer Spanish as an option for text-to-speech? This is an accommodation that many students would benefit from.
